Hydrogen storage performance of LiBH4/Mg complex hydrides

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The effects of LiBH4 on the hydrogen storage performance of magnesium were investigated. The LiBH4/Mg mixtures with a mass ratio of 1:4 and 1:10 were prepared by ball milling in argon gas for 1 h. It is found that the prepared LiBH4/Mg mixture exhibits superior kinetics compared with the pure magnesium powder. For example, at 250°C, a capacity of 6.7wt% hydrogen was achieved in 60 min for LiBH4/Mg mixture, while only 1.2wt% hydrogen was absorbed for pure Mg at 300°C in 80 min. It suggests that LiBH4 can play an important role in improving the hydrogen storage performance of magnesium.
